Tapestry Theatre Co invites you to our first sensory friendly performance. We recognize that many families who live with differing abilities feel they cannot attend live performances. The Dec. 2, 2 p.m. performance will provide a welcoming environment and access to the theatre arts. Our overall goal is to make sure no one feels left out, judged or mistreated. We aim to bring a performance, with an all abilities cast, to those who are and are not comfortable in a typical performance setting.
